Archives Month – It’s Time to Celebrate!
Tomorrow starts one of my favorite months – American Archives Month! After all, I spend a lot of time in archives and so value them!
And, to be honest, I always love the plethora of neat posters created by archives in celebration! A delightful smorgasbord for the eyes! See a few of them at the end of this post.
Share a link to the poster for your state via blog, FB or emailed comment! I’ll include images from the posters that you let me know about!
Some events which occur annually during this month are …
1. Ask An Archivist Day … The Society of American Archivists is sponsoring an #AskAnArchivist Day on October 5th to kick off Archives Month. Ask An Archivist Day is an opportunity to respond to questions from the public tweeted with the hashtag #AskAnArchivist. This is an opportunity for your state archives to engage with your public via your Twitter accounts.
2. Electronic Records Day … CoSA is sponsoring Electronic Records Day 2016. The purpose of Electronic Records Day is to raise community awareness of our digital records, and of the need to manage and preserve them.
What will you be doing to celebrate American Archives Month?
